Nị's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipment to build a toilet.

Nị's story

Mr. Nị is 52 years old and is married with 3 children. He is an ethnic minority living in Cam Thuy district, a mountainous region of the Thanh Hoa province. He speaks ethnic minority languages and rarely goes out of the village and has limited opportunity to access to financial services.

He has worked in agriculture and has farmed food for more than 10 years. His income is lower than the national average income, moreover this job is unstable.

One of the most critical difficulties that concerns his is the latrine is not hygienic. But his income is not enough to get a new one. He is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick and equipments to build toilet.

This is Nị first loan with Thanh Hoa microfinance institution. Nị hopes for his family to be healthy and happy, for his business to do well, and for his children to find a good job.
